Married // Joe & Natalie’s Vintage Inspired Garden Wedding // Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden: Belmont, NC

I’m so excited to share  Joe & Natalie’s wedding! They are the most adorable couple and all the thought and DETAIL that was put into this wedding was the absolute sweetest way to enter a marriage. The decorations were breath taking, Natalie was stunning, Joe’s perma-smile spanned a mile wide, and their ceremony was one that they and their guests will never forget. There were so many details about this wedding that were so unique and it was so much fun learning about and photographing every single bit of this wedding.

Mom and Meryl opted to start doing hair and makeup earlier than usual for Natalie and her two bridesmaids. It was amazing and allowed the ladies enough time to chill, take in the day, double check the check lists and snap a few cute photos like these.b6Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+5.40.47+PMb7Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+5.41.47+PMb8Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+5.42.06+PMb10Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+5.42.22+PMb11Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+5.42.44+PMb12Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+5.39.53+PMb13Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+6.15.32+PMb14Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+5.43.57+PMb15.3PTM+Storyboard+2+Upb16Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+5.45.17+PMb17Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+5.45.28+PMb18Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+5.45.41+PMb19Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+6.16.49+PMb20.7PTM+Storyboard+2+Upb21Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+6.18.00+PMb22Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+5.47.10+PM

So what does one do when they have two best guy friends? They opt for BridesMEN!

What a gorgeous group of ladies?! I’ll have to admit, I probably should have brushed up on my Spanish a little more so that I could have said more than just, “Abuela, aqui por favor. Gracias! Uno, dos, tres! Muchas bonitas!!” The majority of Natalie’s family flew in from Panama for her wedding and they were all stunning beyond words.b3Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+5.47.45+PMb4Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+5.46.05+PMb5Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+5.48.47+PMb6Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+5.48.59+PMb7Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+5.49.30+PMb8Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+5.51.24+PMb9Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+5.53.40+PMb10Screen+shot+2013-09-10+at+5.55.37+PMb11.5PTM+Storyboard+2+Up

Their last talk before the ceremony. They each wrote heartfelt letters to each other that made their ole’ photographer happy that she wore waterproof mascara.

As a special addition to their ceremony, Natalie and Joe opted to write each other letters that they placed in a wooden box with a bottle of wine. On their one year anniversary they will re-open the box and read the letters in celebration. They will then write another letter to each other for their next anniversary and keep the tradition going.
